The Princess of Wales


The Princess of Wales Pub in Primrose Hill is 150 years old but after a recent renovation it's boasting the best of two worlds. With a strong history of British traditions this warm and welcoming Gastro Pub has gone through stunning refurbishment. The Princess of Wales pub stretches over three floors, including an elegant first floor dining room, lower-ground bar and event space- perfect for booking a private event or tables for larger groups. Their Banksy beer garden (named after a mysterious lion stencil that appeared in 2011) is a Primrose Hill privilege where you can enjoy a Rhubarb Royale cocktail or a dry cured bacon breakfast bap. The Princess of Wales Pub serves great British pub food in a laid-back atmosphere, overseen by chef du jour Carl Clarke (of Hix and the Café Anglais).

The majority of ingredients come from British suppliers including Bath Pig chorizo, Wright Brothers prawns, Trealy Farm ham and London Cure salmon. Generous sharing boards and stone baked flat breads are perfect for two or more, Steaks/Chops/Big Plates will conquer larger appetites and sweet tooths can gorge on the strawberry and lavender pavlova or double chocolate and peanut butter brownie with salted caramel ice cream.

A wide selection of predominantly British spirits are served including Chase, Hendricks and Sipsmiths served with the classic ice and a slice or in a selection of tasty cocktails. A thoughtfully chosen wine list includes Chapel Down wines from Kent alongside Champagne, Prosecco, cask ales, organic ciders and good ol' London Pride.

Not just offering a new menu, the pub will be showcasing a fun and engaging series of regular events ranging from Tuesday quiz nights to the POW supper club on the first Thursday of each month, calling out to all London foodies. The Sunday Jazz sessions will continue to accompany the classic Sunday Roast, the perfect accompaniment to the papers and a freshly made Bloody Mary.

In June 2010, graffiti artist Banksy ‘struck’ in yet another night-time raid in the area and the artist silhouetted against the garden wall by the light set up in the beer garden.
The garden is a special, private, quiet spot lit up at night and a real sun trap by day. There is a section under cover and a section that is not, this space is ideal
for BBQ’s, garden parties and tea parties. We will also let out the garden exclusively for romantic dinners for two where you will be served by a dedicated member of staff allocated solely for that purpose. It also doubles up as the overflow area for our Garden Room in the summer months.

Princess of Wales Primrose Hill - London Gastro Pub Review

On a balmy and blue-skied Sunday, there's nowhere nicer for a stroll than through one of our city’s Royal Parks. After a leisurely saunter through Regent’s paths, and working up quite the thirst, we headed to the next best place to be on a hot day - the pub. In leafy Primrose Hill, standing…
